Helping you prepare to care for your new baby


Melrose-Wakefield Hospital’s prenatal and family education classes help you and your family prepare for your new baby. We offer everything from early pregnancy classes to infant care classes. After your baby is born, you may continue to rely on us to help you care for your newborn. Postnatal classes include infant and pediatric CPR training.

Parents and caretakers of children from birth through the age of three can also take advantage of Hallmark Health’s North Suburban Child and Family Resource Network, a community-based program that offers support, resources and connections to other families in the community. The network offers programs that include playgroups, parent education workshops, a drop-in playroom and a parent support group. The network is free for residents of Melrose, Stoneham and Wakefield.


Online Childbirth Education


Nothing can replace the warmth and personal connection you and your partner would feel in an in-person classroom environment. However, many couples find it hard to fit an entire day, or a series of classes, into their schedules. This online program allows you to learn at your own pace and convenience.

If you have any questions about this program or to register, please contact the Community Health Education Coordinator at 781-338-7561 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
